In Latest Goal Post Shift, Biden Says It’s “Patriotic Responsibility For God’s Sake” To Wear Mask Despite Being Fully Vaccinated
OPINION | This article contains political comments that reflect the author’s opinion.
We have been saying for a year that Democrats are the “party of science”. That they follow science. That they are not “science deniers,” as some conservatives have been called. This is strange because the Democrats refused to recognize the science of things like human biology and completely ignored any scientific evidence that lockdowns and school closings were unnecessary, to name a few.
I don’t think anyone is really surprised that democratic politicians want people to keep wearing masks despite being fully vaccinated. Of course, there is no scientific evidence to suggest that this is necessary or useful in any way. But Biden says it is our “patriotic responsibility for God’s sake”.
If you ask me, this is about as anti-science and anti-vaccines as anything I’ve ever heard from someone hesitant to get the Covid vaccine. They are essentially saying that they don’t trust the vaccines, that they do what they were designed to do. They don’t trust the vaccine to give you adequate immunity. That they don’t trust science and data on post-vaccination transmission rates. What should the American people think when the supposed “Party of Science” doesn’t even seem to trust vaccines?
President Biden was at the center of efforts by Democratic leaders to signal virtue and was recently ridiculed around the world for wearing a mask at a video conference on climate change with world leaders. A video conference. Of course, the administration defended his wearing of masks, saying he wasn’t the only person in the room while he was on the video call and he was sending “a message to the world” to take Covid seriously. But here too, when everyone in the room is fully vaccinated, everyone close to the frail geriatric president is …

He also wondered when he wore a mask during an outside press event while walking all alone to announce that the CDC has finally given the American people permission to stop wearing masks outside while they are fully vaccinated are.
Side note. Were there actually free American citizens wearing masks outside? Alone outside? In real life? Enough to announce a press conference? That honestly confuses me. And how backward it is that the CDC believes it has the authority to give American citizens permission to stop doing something that was utterly nonsensical and unnecessary.
However, a reporter asked why he, a fully vaccinated person, felt like he had to wear a mask while he was all alone and outside. His answer was an odd, nonsensical statement that didn’t really answer the question. Pretty much the standard Biden answer.

Now, in an interview with Today, Biden told the American people that “it is a patriotic responsibility for God’s sake” to keep wearing masks despite being fully vaccinated. Again, this completely contradicts any scientific data available on the subject as well as common sense.

The goal posts keep moving. Do you remember when it took 15 days to smooth the curve? Just so as not to overwhelm the hospitals? Then we just had to wait for the number of hospitalizations to decrease. Then we just had to wait for the number of new cases to decrease. Then we had to continue masks and social distancing to avoid new case swings. Then we had to wait for the vaccine to become widespread. Then we only had to wear masks for the first 100 days of Biden’s administration. Then we had to wait for the vaccine to become widespread. Now we need to continue masking and distancing even though the vaccine is widely used. Constantly changing goal posts.

What’s the next new goal post? Are we waiting for absolutely no new cases? Because that’s unreasonable. That will never happen. There will always be new cases. What tiny risk is finally deemed acceptable to the authoritarian dictators who now control our lives?
As a healthy and healthy young woman, I am at far greater risk of a number of strange deaths than I am of a Covid death. The risk to my children is so incredibly small that it isn’t even a factor in our lives. It has never been like this before. My kids literally never wore a mask. I will not mask my children. It is contrary to science and common sense.
I just wish more people would think for themselves, analyze the data, and make an informed decision based on their own. Health, habits and activities instead of just blindly following an authority figure telling them what to do.
